How to Buy the Perfect Wedding Gift

Posted by Kyle Design on June 21, 2012

Here we go again…another stack of R.S.V.P.s for “Wedding Season.” It’s here. In full force. First thought – I need a new dress. Second – what should we get them???

DON’T write a check!

It’s easy to write a check and slip it into a card, but where’s the thought in that? And what if it just gets deposited into their bank account and ends up paying the energy bill? After all, that’s what happened to most of the money I received on my wedding day. Checks were cashed and the funds slowly slipped away over time. Some gift!

DON’T buy from the registry!

If you want to be sure your money is going to an actual gift, you could select an item off their registry, but guess what – unless this couple still lives at home with their parents, they probably already have most of the kitchen utensils they need and they’re not going to remember who bought them that new toaster 5 years down the line. Unless of course it breaks, then you’ll instantly come to mind. Murphy’s Law.

DO make it personal!

The wedding gifts I remember receiving are the ones that weren’t on my registry. They either got returned (I don’t drink coffee and therefore didn’t need a fancy coffee machine), donated (there’s always that one wacky gift), or…DING! DING! DING!…found a place in my home. The ones that got my stamp of approval really stood out because they were unique and personal! I’m sure the gift-givers would be happy to know I still think of them when I see or use these items.

That’s what I want for the gifts I give. I want them to stand out as thoughtful. Not fall into the category of found-my-way-to-their-registry, scanned-for-gift-in-price-range, and added-to-cart. (If you DO do this, please spring for the gift wrap – it really makes opening the gift SO much more enjoyable!)

Always spring for gift wrap!

DO have your gift engraved!

One way to ensure your present will always be remembered is to go with an engraved gift. I do this whenever possible. It adds a personal element in a way nothing else can – something my husband obviously understood since his wedding gift to me was an engraved pair of ice skates (since we skated on our first date – can’t get more thoughtful than that!). Surprisingly, no other gift came personalized in this way. You might be the only person who gives this couple an engraved gift, which will make it stand out and ensure it’s appreciated and remembered.

DO visit Kyle Design for unique ideas!

A great place to get unique personalized gifts that can be engraved is Kyle Design. What sets them apart from other wedding gift websites is that each gift is personalized (you pick the colors on every gift), handcrafted (we’re talking quality gifts assembled by hand to perfection), and adding an engraved message won’t delay shipment of your gift. In fact, many orders ship out the same day!

Another cool thing is that there’s over 500 designs. You can choose wedding bells, ballroom dancers and hearts for traditional gifts, symbols for wishing blessings and luck, or select hobby or occupational designs for incorporating the couple’s personality or story of how they met or got engaged.

Engraved wedding keepsakes from Kyle Design are also a great way to accessorize a store-bought wedding gift – add an engraved ornament to your gift wrap or put your cash gift in a cute metal wallet. That way, your gift will stand out even if you do choose to buy from the registry or give money.
